TV channel Discovery has concluded an agreement with “Mirax
Group” Corporation on shooting a documentary about the construction of “Federation” complex.

The documentary will highlight the work progress on the territory of the Moscow International Business Center “Moscow City” of a multifunctional office and recreation center “Federation” to be the highest building in Europe. Among the heroes of the film there will be the following construction participants – “Mirax Group” as project’s initiator and investor as well as its Russian and foreign partners: architects Peter Shweger and Sergey Choban, “Turner Construction”, “Thornton-Tomasetti Engineers Division”, “Jaros, Baum & Bolles”, “Williams Davies & Irwin Inc.(RWDI)”, ”Ant Yapy”, “Kaskatash”, “Stiles & Riabokobylko Ltd.”, “Hyatt International Corporation”, Design bureau №6 under “Mosproekt-2” and “Veshntorgbank” as the principal financial partner. The project is an international one pooling the interests of the Russian private business and the world high-rise construction experience.

The documentary will demonstrate the advanced technologies applied in the construction of the “Federation” tower. Namely the central core will be erected using hydraulic formwork – though yet unknown in Russia but a widely used in the West technology. This effective method of high-rise construction ensures an automated lifting of the central core formwork weighing more than 25 tons and saves carnage time.
Shooting will be carried out with a permanently operating video camera installed on the territory of the Moscow International Business Center “Moscow City”. The film will last 52 minutes. Shooting is planned to be finished in 2007 – by the time of completion of “Federation” complex construction.

Well this is great IMO, they did one for the Turning Torso that was great.
